An explorer can explore a new map tile if the current map tile does not contain an entry or exit token. And when playing in Normal mode (as the game is intended to be played), the rules say (rulebook p.26):

When an explorer explores a new map tile, put an edge token on the edge of the activating explorer’s map tile. If there is already an edge token on that map tile edge, the exploring effect cannot be resolved. You can’t put an exit token on top of an existing edge token.

I guess that "activating explorer's map tile" means "the current map tile from where the explorer will explore the new tile"... Right?

Thanks

Maybe an odd question, but what is the purpose of the edge token? Is it just to keep people from choosing an already explored edge for an exit? Or is there some other gameplay reason for it?
